Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

For the first time in three weeks, the Rogue States trial didn't dominate blog traffic. Instead, y'all favored a mix of subjects, from Starbucks' plan to start selling alcohol to a four-star restaurant that lost its cache to the ongoing fascination with the sale of the Brickskeller. Hmm, I'm thinking the ultimate traffic-generating blog item […]

Esquire Names Bibiana One of the 20 Best New Restaurants of 2010

This news has been reported in many other places, but Esquire finally posted the 20 Best New Restaurants feature online, where we can read what John Mariani had to say about Bibiana, Ashok Bajaj's sleek new Italian operation. Bibiana is the lone representative from the District, and like last year's D.C. pick (and the two […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Was it the David vs. Goliath storyline? Or the sheer absurdity of a nuisance trial based on that hot-grill perfume known as hamburger fumes? Or just that lawyers love reading about other lawyers in potentially precedent-setting cases? Whatever the reason, thousands of you clicked on Y&H's Steptoe & Johnson vs. Rogue States coverage last week. […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

If you haven't noticed already, we at Y&H Central decided it would be a good idea to stop confusing readers. We will no longer have separate spots on the website for the Young & Hungry blog and the Young & Hungry column. From now on, you'll find everything you want under this banner. For some […]

A Look Inside the New Carmine’s in Penn Quarter

As promised last week, online producer Emily Kaiser has put together a visual tour of the new, 20,000-square-foot Carmine's in Penn Quarter, the almost-but-not-quite largest restaurant in D.C.  Check out that industrial-sized pasta cooker!

Angelico la Pizzeria Coming to Glover Park

It's not clear from this signage (or from the company's Web site) whether this promised pizzeria in Glover Park is part of the budding Angelico empire or not. My good liege over at Prince of Petworth wondered the same thing on Wednesday (with a much nicer photo, I must say). I made a couple of […]

This Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

I don't know about you, but between the cold weather and the post-vacation stupor, your semi-friendly Y&H just hasn't been able to embrace the work-at-all-costs mentality yet. I'm feeling so, so unAmerican. I have, however,  enjoyed mixing it up again on the blog, and you readers have been clicking in droves this week. I (and […]

A Break Down of Travel + Leisure’s 50 Best New U.S. Restaurants

I know that others have previously mentioned Travel + Leisure's list of the 50 best new restaurants in America, but I finally got a chance to review the magazine's related slideshow. I dutifully clicked on one slide after another after another, trying to discover which cities outperformed D.C. for these 50 coveted spots. Our metro […]

Meridian Pint Coming to Columbia Heights in Late 2009

Yesterday, I posted about construction at the old Bi-Rite building, up the road from Wonderland Ballroom on 11th Street in Columbia Heights. Today, I reached John Andrade, owner of the future lounge/restaurant Meridian Pint, which will move into the building “any fall now,” as he put it. Without further adieu, more details about the space: […]

A Slavish Devotion to the New New Thing

A well-established D.C. chef/owner once bitched to me that his restaurants don't get the same coverage as the flashy new joints with the multi-million-dollar build-outs and the pedigreed toques pushing yet another take on New American cooking. I was sympathetic. It's true, food writers, like most journalists, tend to have a slavish devotion to the […]
